We and 5 others had the Boulder tour and it was fun!. We loved the ghost stories, the history and the quaint bus with unique seats. Some suggestions: Provide bottled water. Shorten the tour to 1 hour 15 minutes by being more concise with some of the stops. (It seemed just a little too long but maybe because I was... More

Excellent tour. Had the pleasure of having Bango Billy himself as a guide. Billy was extremely knowledgable of local history which added to the tour.

Met up in Boulder with my college roommate and our spouses and took the afternoon tour on a busy Saturday. The bus was packed and we had a blast. Fun stories along the way as we motored around Boulder. There's a great vibe and lots of fun as you are greeted by various people along the route and respond with... More

It took me a little bit of time to get to the bus, and the company is small enough that when I arrived there were only about 5 people on the bus. The bus waited for me and even called me to make sure I was near. The term asked us if we wanted a historical tour or a ghost... More

We booked this up at $23 and change per ticket for 4 p.m On the day we booked. We picked the seat of death at the back of the bus and it is truly uncomfortable , perhaps not as uncomfortable as the horse saddle seat that one young lady had to take on the 1 1/2 hour tour . All... More

We booked a private tour for a birthday party and had a blast. The tour guide was well informed and the atmosphere was fun.

Had a fun time on this tour. We had the sofa of death in the back of bus. Bad choice. Very bumpy, but fun. A little corny, but fun. Would not do more than once, but fun.

We had a friend's college-aged daughter visit for the long weekend and we were looking for a fun activity. Having lived in the Boulder area for over 35 years, my husband and I thought we had a pretty good grasp of sites and the history. Our driver/guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. We saw places of interest in Boulder and learned... More

I have been on other musical tours in Memphis and Nashville. Don't expect the same. The music was hard to hear and from an I phone. The tour was not that great. The guid was good but not that much material to warrant the price.

Thank vfdow
